At the height of her fame, record label execs pressured Benatar to hide her pregnancies because they didn’t fit with her sexy image. “They wanted me to be the single vixen, and having a baby was as unvixenlike as you could be,” says Benatar. “In their eyes, it was like a death sentence.” When Haley (now a jewelry designer and aspiring TV host) was born in 1985, Benatar was afraid that easing up on work would wreck her career. “Everything was at the peak, and everybody said, ‘Step away now? Are you stupid?'” she recalls. When Hana (who sings in a choir) arrived nine years later, Benatar didn’t think twice about focusing on motherhood. “I knew it was the right thing.”

Pat Benatar: she's always been a rule-breaker and a trail-blazer, she remains a bold and distinctive artist both on stage and on record, and now, after more than three decades in rock 'n' roll, she's a bonafide living legend. Songs like “Love is a Battlefield”, “Hit Me with Your Best Shot”, “Heartbreaker”, “Promises In The Dark” and “We Belong” are as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Pat emerged, fearless, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world. Neil “Spyder” James Giraldo, has been a professional musician, producer, arranger and songwriter for over four decades now, changing the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar. More than just an explosive steel-bending guitar player, Giraldo's innovative vision helped him create the signature Benatar sound, from its inception. His impressive back catalog includes more than 100 songs written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, as well as many hits he helped create for John Waite, Rick Springfield (Number One, Grammy-winning classic “Jessie's Girl” and Top Ten hit “I've Done Everything For You” included), Kenny Loggins (Top Twenty hit “Don't Fight It” – also Grammy-nominated), Steve Forbert, The Del Lords, Beth Hart and countless others.
